Best Answer

There are 9 ninths in a unit - seven ninths is less than nine ninths, so 7/9 <1

To visualise it, try this:

Cut a Pizza into nine equal slices - if they are not equal, pretend they are.

If you take seven of these nine slices, you have seven ninths of a pizza. Is that not less than the whole ONE?
